"Mean it was definitely rough just because when you match a face to a voice You don't you don't know what to expect. You don't know how that person's GonNa feel or smell or when you start getting into that rhythm. I think when you start dating anybody it's little awkward at first right. You're just like like okay like how do you? How do you dance? Or how do you do this and I think the awkwardness was like just between us. And you know no one else kind of contributed to that. But what about you? Did you think any of the other girls kind of cute those literally when I walked and I saw the girls and guys like I made the right choice on. I'm still happy with it. I was like this is my gross. I WANNA stare at still like the most beautiful woman. So yeah did anyone ever say. Hey Mark Dude. I don't think she's into you me mark. I'm sorry no no no Mark Cuevas. Was anyone like come on. I don't think she got into you over there talking to Barnett. No it's so there's a. There's a lot of things that weren't seeing me. Mark Probably spoke the most dear in Mexico and parliaments me and homer like you know at it from a friendship perspective of like. Hey what's going on like let's talk and there was a lot of back with Marc was very very very and address but there were times I mean I thought it was just a lot to you know and she may seem like she wasn't like all like always in the mart but there were times for those connections. Were really strong in her. Mark had very good moments Behind the scenes on some scenes that I know about Were they were actually really happy together. So yeah they the possibility of helmet. Marling shouldn't like you that I couldn't say that because that wasn't true all the way you know what I mean. They're love we're just. We hung out with them. You know in the apartments and stuff and they were like like you know he'd come over and have a wine night with this. Yeah so there were really beautiful moments in. It's hard to tell somebody that when you do get mixed signals back and forth great one day and then maybe not so much. The next nets challenges of a new relationship daylight. You know what's going on in your relationship like you. We don't know we can only assume so. It's like you know what you're doing because you're the one in the relationship with this other person so you know you can't really tell someone to not follow their Heart Tan. Bring a time okay. So so then we get to the point of like you guys are deciding to go ahead with the wedding and I mean you guys are not to be rude but you guys are the super teams right like you guys like what happens with you guys is kind of what everyone is waiting to see on this show that day. Here's my real question. It is did someone say. Hey get those two chairs and PLOP them down. Sit our talking right now because it was the coolest moment in TV ever really. That was real. Was My other question that did you think you're gonNA get slapped when you walk in the room. And she's like stopping coming at you and I was like all Danish guests lot right in the face on. Tv is going to be amazing. I want to take insulin I can't blame her for feeling hurt and vulnerable and you know really putting herself out there in that moment and you know me in a sense taking that away from her but also knew we had felt and discussed throughout the experience. And as much as I wish I could take it away from her. That day. In a no woman should ever have to go through. I put her through in that moment but I still made the right choice still because we are stronger and healthier today because we weren't put into all the confinements of what marriage is move in together. We gotta have kids. You combine your finances. You have to split family vacations willing to each other for six weeks and I feel like I wanted us to be best friends. I yeah so I think we both did what we thought she knew. I was and I want to get married to our did but and thank you know. It all came down to our decisions on that day. I mean you hear me say I do not. I wanted to do so bad but I knew we needed more time to really bro and build with each other so if shoot a slap me today. I I think I would never mad. I would have taken it. Envisioned a respect those guy and congratulations on being engaged. But you know how much it takes to just kind of feel like. We need to talk about everything. Sure so. Yeah Yeah There's a lot of conversations like one of like you know. Like pooping is a congress. You got the same house together so so I totally get it okay. Well then it doesn't work out in that scenario right but then is leave. I didn't know this but everyone lives in Atlanta which I think is genius for how to create this reality. Tv also another great reason. We want to go on shows like it's not like the bachelor of their pull from everywhere. And you got to move and relocate so yeah so then you guys get you guys get back home after and you're able to reconnect and work it out right so I'm directional so after I.

"The Taylor that off. It's like Y- people just have to be willing to. They're always going to be problems. Come up but can both people not just compromise but understand those problems and adjust because all relationships are work. Do you think that part of the reason you move forward? Even though there were some red flags is because of the isolation No I think when I was feeling those emotions that you know like I said I stayed myself the whole time that those were real I you know like I said I'm still one I. I saw her and like I. I think I hope at twenty four I held onto it. And you know I I wanted And I fought for a fighter. Like that's just what I like what I do. That's who I am like. Maybe like sure maybe too much I and I and I learned from and again I learned how to communicate and I learned how to set healthy boundaries in a relationship I've learned how to just be overall better communicator after the reunion if you had been at the same bar and you had three younger meister shots and she walked in the room. Would you have been like? Let's set the night on fire or were you like that chapters closed. I'm moving ahead like like I communicated to her if she ever needed anything She can always reach out She's a strong independent woman. And like for me like like I'm just.

"Intense. So you hit it off with Jessica. Was there anybody else kind of in the background that you thought? Maybe there's a chance for you know what's crazy. I think everybody ended up with who they were supposed to end up because like you know I look back at it now and like so. We have like a top three the final three girls or people. You're supposed to decide. What am I? Final three were amber diamond and Jessica but amber was my like one of my best friends in diamond was one of my best friend and all I did was all we did was talk about the people that were actually into which was You know Andrew with Barnet and then like diamond with Carlton and then me and says we all just talked about and it was just like it was awesome because I made like a set of sisters to this whole experienced people that I'm so close with that we were. We were all supporting each other like like so it was once I made that connection. I knew that like I didn't want anybody else. It's like all the other girl. Then all the other guys. We're supporting each other to have you ever talked to amber about Jessica's feelings about that. No you know it's with it during the show we've my I like. I didn't even know that that was the thing really thing with. I mean not as much as you know me as me and Barnett were really close Throughout the like we actually roommates. Yeah so not in a bad way because he helped me with a lot of stuff and I helped him emotionally with a lot of stuff and like we were just boys like the whole time like my like I just it myself though so when you saw play back and you saw her struggling seemingly struggling between you and Barnett was at a total shock to you So I guess. I thought that it was a total shock. I think that like you know everybody goes through things differently. And you know this. Whole experience was so intense With for Jesse Myself You know. Everybody acts differently too. You know certain stressors and everything like that so I think maybe like he got blown up more than it was and you know for me. I handle my stresses one way and just handles hers another way and you know it is what it is. Oh my gosh will. So then you start to talk to Jessica you feel this incredible bond. You end up proposing to her. You see her for the first time. It seemed like you were so happy like it will all come together like I really connected to this girl emotionally. I think she's beautiful. Do you feel like. In retrospect it was reciprocated. I mean Barilla's moment I mean I still when I look back at it and I see it again like I I just. It's time stand still right and you know nothing. I was on cloud nine. Nothing matters as I saw her and you know when it was it was the perfect moment you know like we heard. I didn't really catch it. But her and I both said this to each other when we first started like this is a world series winning like since we're both cubs fan like being one hundred and eight years not winning a world series like this was it like and to meet held onto no matter what like. Vat Love like you can't like I don't know if you saw my reaction after the when I'm like. Wow did her. Yeah like like that. That was me for like a solid forty eight hours of like just even when I saw him. I'm like wow like what like what I'm like Dude I. I'm sorry I'm just that's how I just don't feel that like I was real. It was just was such a beautiful moment that I'll I'll always hold that moment man because it's like we say we want a like and no matter what just GonNa have that special place in my heart and like becoming better better man from all this experience and like everything that we've gone through like you know there's no hate from it so some people have suggested that you had a girlfriend during the taping. Let you broke up with her right before this started. Or you're still together while it was filming. No that's not true at all. No I didn't After filming I will say after Filming A couple months after I ended up having a girlfriend but I did not have a girlfriend during filming and then how did you keep that? Well I guess because because it wasn't airing let's go. How did you keep that a secret? You live your life you just got to one one day after another and keep mckeever moving. And that's what I did because we didn't even know if the show is gonNA come out with a year and a half later where you live your life and you keep moving forward now. She has said it to entertainment weekly that she tried to leave. Were you aware of that at all? I so with just her and I. We both had a lot of talks in conversations. You know like I didn't. I honestly any conversation that federal producers like. I wasn't in those rooms. I don't know what was said. I just know that like you know there's people that have that left and there's people that stayed and you know for me like I was always going to focus on what I did and I wanted to stay because I love the woman like that was in the moment into time like that was my thing like I was in I held on. I don't know if anybody what we just talked about but I was in. Did you have an agreement before the wedding ceremony because we see her wearing a wedding dress which seemed solely very weird and she didn't carry McKay? She sort of this weird look on her face. Your friend seemed a little bit bewildered. Like dude you really want to do this. What was happening behind the scenes? And was there some sort of agreement that you would both say no and then you changed your mind? So I've gone back to the initial promise that I made myself that I'm always GonNa be myself and living in the moment like no matter like Jess and you know we've had conversations. She was adamant that her truth was the same. No and you know I try it like wait prior before like the last week before a wedding you know. The thing is like that last week of our wedding. She was turning around. And I don't know if you saw like in the end of the show where you know. She's coming around and telling me she loves me like you know and telling your friends about me and like Mrs Cuevas like that's when things started to like come around to me and I I really like you know what a lot of people like don't know is like she's no one night. We were laying them. She told me she loved me. Like in like you know like I- i- contacting you love me and so for me like I don't I just live my truth and I when I saw her walking down the aisle. I didn't notice any kind of like. I just thought that. Like when she walked on the island she saw. I live that moment and just like I did to the reveal day I I lived at that moment to like and I didn't worry about what anybody thought it was just like. I I held onto the you know the idea that we could be and maybe looking back at it was maybe it was it the right decision. I don't know but I know that in the moment that I was on cloud nine it was the same thing and I still felt that way about it. I was confused too because it felt like in one in one moment she is doubting the whole process and then she's telling her friend she's going to be Mrs Cuevas and also she seemed to say to you she didn't WanNa be intimate but then she brags to her friends. You guys were intimate so it was very confusing. I'm I'm assuming at her interviews to like. I don't WanNa like Thri too much but I mean digitally on the deals. Oh did I like that. I go home now. Did you all the way to home base because it was confusing because sheets made it. Seemed like you didn't but then Brag to her friends and we were like what no. Yeah I mean yeah we we until we got back to Atlanta and like it was you know it just happens like learn any loan he did. It just happened like we. You know there's no same on that. I mean we talked about at the reunion. Do like you know just happened. Okay what about the scene? Where she's feeding her dog wine. I believe that you have said she was kind of going in circles about your age and whether or not it would work so you didn't even see the dog drinking the wine No for me like I was just focused on like she was you know. I don't know if you could see that scene like she was just kinda grilling me with questions. So you know the conversation was getting elevated so I just wanted to be focused on like what you know. She was trying to ask me and what questions them because they were coming one after another and I kind of noticed that the corner and I but I was again. Just I'm I'm always going to be president in the conversation and I'm always GonNa try to answer every question that she was kind of you. The best mind now do you. In retrospect kind of understand to some degree her concern because of the age difference. I know you've said ages just number but I suspect if we circle back at age thirty four that you might have a different perspective. I mean there is a little bit of legitimacy to the question. Are you fully prepared? Because most men at age twenty four. I mean this is even two years later. You may even changed your mind but at twenty four. You're like you're just beginning your career. You've just left college. Do you. Kind of understand where she was coming from. Oh I mean look the thing about. It is like what I've always said about aides being just a number. I don't think it's just like Willy Nilly like you. Just toss it out there like. Oh ages us a number. I think that it takes two people that are raised in two different ways and understand. I've lived through different lines that are willing to make not just not make it work but willing to say that there's GonNa be some like like patients needed in order to adapt to that lifestyle. You know I think two people are willing to do that. Then you know. Any love conquers the age gap interracial or. It doesn't matter it's like you know only going to be things in a relationship you know. Come Up. That aren't it's never it's not gonNA JUST BE AGE. It can be anything you know. I've grown so much from this whole experience It it was like like you said before the emotional boot camp but like I'm waiting more mature than was twenty four. No matter what like this whole thing was happened the way it was supposed to happen..

You've probably had three seconds to date but there is this opportunity for you to meet somebody who you will have a deep emotional connection with and this might be the person that you could be with for the rest of your life. How do they convince someone who's only twenty four that this is really fantastic opportunity to meet the person well the way that they did it? They actually reach out to me and kind of like I filled it out. So this is mainly my. There's not like that. They convince your coerced music. It was mainly just like me kept going. I kept going through the process. They actually didn't know if I was because I was below their Their threshold. I think the age cut off with twenty five and so they were just like you know I kept talking to them and going through the process for with that was like an interview You know a phone interview or a psychological evaluation. Did all this other stuff but like I'm the one that actually kept going with it. You know they never once told me like this would you? This is what can happen. They're like earn. Like you should do this or this or that. No it was just me being me and by the end of it you know. I didn't find out that they were going to pick me until like shoe weeks before I actually went on the filming so they were making up their mind about me until then as far as you knew what. How much time was this going to take the original time commitment that I had had supposedly ten days because that was the whole POD pod section. I kinda was like asked days like you know in my mind. I'm like I don't know if I'm going to get married but like I know this is a safe house in like it. If it happened you know. Luckily I with the company that I worked for the time they were very understanding with me of like. You know just kind of opportunity of like you know whether it's fine loving to go on this show and to do just to be me and like I asked only ten days off at first and once I've found you know just I was like hey man so I'm GonNa need a. I need a couple extra days and you know 'cause I found somebody and they're super understanding. Oh Wow okay so you go to drive you up into this studio in Atlanta they make it into pods but you guys slept somewhere else at night. You're with all of these guys. You've said it was like emotional boot camp. He came very close with the guys. Walk us through what the experience is like in the pods because I understand it was like it began with seven minute dates. Yeah so it was. Crazy is like not every so like there's only pending hot and so the first day they were like we need you guys to narrow down exactly what you WANNA ask so. We're only giving me seven minutes on the first day with each girl. So we're dating every girl Just in rounds right so it'd be like five guys at a time while another five guys are in the living room and another five guys. You're doing something else so like it was like the rotations.

"You know ultimately what's going to propose to Elsie or proposed amber or propose to nobody. That was a really really big possibility. Like we had no idea what he was gonNA do. And which was You know thrilling emotional experience to be to be connected to So I think literally everything that happened was a surprise to me in a great way. What if one of the couples wanted or someone within the cast wanted to leave through the process in the pod portion the Mexico portion getting to know the others families in Atlanta the wedding portion. Did they have the ability to walk away if they wanted to? A hundred percent. And you know. I know that there's been shower about that. I know that You know all you have to do is watch the show to know that. That's true Diamond and Carlton didn't you know ultimately And I think it's more was more her choice than his choice. But you know ultimately didn't want to continue with the With the process and we certainly you know didn't want to make anybody do anything they didn't want to do. Yeah you know Jessica with Mark You know I think to be fair to Jessica I think. Look Jessica has had a lot of Very vitriolic social media coming her way. I think The it's not just social media but it's the reaction of people in her life. You know a family and friends and and And I have to say I found Jessica to be really relatable in a lot of ways in that Jessica was very conflicted. You know You Know Jessica. I think really. Obviously her. You know head was completely spun by what she felt had happened with our net in the inner pods and then but I think she truly and when you watch the the reveal when just mark to each other for the first time in you listen to what she's saying and you and you watch how she say it it's it's genuine and she loves this man you know. She loves him and you know when they got to Mexico she I think started to spin out and you know she talks about this on the show you know. She's spinning out in her head a little bit like he's not she can she says this You know he's not quite as big as maybe the guys that she stated before. It doesn't quite look the way that you know. Other guy that he's younger you know and and and she herself will talk about being an over thinker and getting in her own way and I think by the time that she You know and again she you see this happened on the show you know. She takes off her ring by the time. They're they're sort of toward the end at the at the end of the The Romantic getaway and and at that point that was the only time along the way that She ever said God. I don't know that I can do this. I don't know that I can make it through. And you know to her credits. I think she under understood that. The experiment was supposed to be hard. It was supposed to be you know that you started with love. And they were to be things that got thrown at you and you had to figure out whether that love could you know overcome them or whether it couldn't it's a journey and to her credit She put the ring pack on she. You know kept waiting for someone to You know say something that was negative. That didn't happen. It didn't happen. She and mark ended up. You know sleeping together and being intimate and you know again. I think that on the wedding day I was surprised and or I was. I was unsure as to as to what was going to happen and you know I will tell you. Nobody ever told her. You can't take your wedding ring off or you have to wear reading wedding ring or you don't have to wear. Nobody ever told her any of that. And I think You know had she truly Wanted to quit. I think she thought about wanting to quit. But you know I've listened to every single one of her interviews personally every single interview that she's ever done on the show and she never once talked about. Oh you know I want to go home and I can't And that was never expressed during the entire but I think. In retrospect I think that if you're Jessica and you're watching the show back that you probably you know you probably are still to this day. Very conflicted about what My you know. Be The impression of you and my God. I didn't really want to go through that. Oh my God I really didn't want to. But he chose to do it and she chose to sleep with him and she chose to go to the wedding and they were all her decisions and again personally. I applaud her for doing that. I think it takes a lot of guts bravery and she wanted to see it through the end and ultimately I think you know her. Her conflict or inner conflict was very visible for everyone to see. And you know and I think that for somebody like Jessica. It's probably a little embarrassed. I'm sure I'm sure but a good experience and I'm sure she's learned from it and I I'm I'm sure they're probably a million guys. Now that are clamoring to get her number so it will all work out in and she's GonNa she she's Great. She's Great. She'll come out of this really. You know really strong way. I think it'll it'll make her Again she even even Jessica to you know and I've spoken to her. Even Jessica describes it as one of the most amazing experiences for life. I think you know I think she feels a little embarrassed but I think that she will You know come out of it. Much much much stronger. And as I've said to her I applaud her. I relate to her. You know being conflicted but I also applaud her for being willing to be as vulnerable in real with what she was feeling You know as she was. Will we ever see the other couples that got engaged? Any sort of follow up to them. Baby has some sort of I mean not. Neither one of them went through with their with their marriage So possibly as as sort of little extras and goodies. I mean that's something that we've talked with the team in Fox about You know the look the the exciting thing about the way that the show has been received is that there You know people people want to see more about all these these different stories that we didn't have the time in a ten episode run to cover. You know we certainly have lots of coverage on those stories some incredible incredible Stories and footage that we have from each part of the Each part of the experiment. That you know I mean there's a there's an incredible story Not only these couple of engagements but there was a woman named Brianna who Was very interested in Carlton. You know at the same time that he was He and diamond. We're developing their relationship. And you know ultimately Carleton Decided to You know he was in love with with diamond and wanted to pose a time in and it Brianna Who felt like it was gonna be her You know she. She had pretty much. The closest thing I've ever seen to an actual panic attack Which was really hard pots and she and what was so hard about it was that she She you know she she I think. Actually there's a moment in one of the Trailers that Netflix has up. Where you just see her kind of going out of the facility and she's Kinda panting and breathing very heavily from behind. She's saying like what's wrong with me what's wrong with me. What's wrong with me because And I went out right after that moment happened and I was talking to her. And and you know the way that she was describing what she was feeling she had felt because of the the set up of this experiment. She felt like she was being rejected. Not for what she looked like. Or you know or any again the service but for who she was on the inside by a man that she had truly felt that she was in love with and that it was. It's it is an incredible story It was an incredible moment and We just felt like we had a I mean we. We have a a an overwhelming abundance of amazing content and we felt like an introducing these series to an audience for the for the first time. Ever that we we could not possibly Fit everything that we would want to tell into into that season and and You know make make it coherent. Doesn't she feel looking back at the Carlton Story that maybe that was the best that she didn't end up with him? I would assume I. Well I mean maybe yeah. Maybe maybe maybe not you know I think with the Carlton Story I think that You Know Look I. I'm I'm really curious to see what would have happened. Had Carlton you know revealed to To diamond Well you know what he considered to be his you know quote unquote secret If he had revealed that when they were in the pods because of how diamond diamond was so impressed with And you know and I think Brianna was too and they both felt like he was being very you know baldly Y- transparent and vulnerable and they They they were doing. They felt like they were doing. And that's why it hurt pretty honest so badly and I think why her diamonds so badly you know ultimately was not. It was not because of his bisexuality or his past. It was because she felt like they had talked about being that they felt like they knew each other again better than they've ever known anyone like this. Is Everything diamond ever wanted in a in a man and then to find out that that man lied about or did or neglected to tell you something that was a very big piece of information She felt like you know what their whole relationship sort of built on some kind of pretense like was he was he not honest about you. Know it just it it just I feel like she had put herself all the way out there to trust him in a way that she never had and then it to feel like that trust wasn't reciprocated. Felt really horrible to her. And I understand that. So look if if I mean first of all you know Carlton wasn't ultimately in love with Brianna so I wouldn't have proposed to Brianna and I think you know. Obviously that's why bringing ticket hard you know if if he had and he was in love with her and he had you know revealed his whole truth her. Maybe yeah maybe it would have worked out differently. I don't know Selassie two quick questions the first is. Do you think that it was necessary to have hosts because we didn't really end up seeing mush of neck and Vanessa in the end? I think people Kinda feel like that wasn't really that necessary and then of course is they're going to be another season of the show because I'm getting flooded with questions about whether or not you can come to their city where they can find somebody. Well first question I You know I think. Nick did a great job They were absolute. You know pros to work with and you know you know I think like everyone. I think the good news is they embrace the the show and the experiment from the beginning but I think they were as You know inspired by by the preceding because everyone was and you know fell more in love with what was happening as it as it went along and you know ultimately look the nicotine asset were there varying point throughout the process You know more than what you ultimately see in the show and and as I said we had an abundance of mazing content and we chose to focus on the stories that I felt like people. would you know would care? I? It's not it's not a show about naked Manasseh. I mean it just. It's not you know it's a show about the the stories of these participants and And that's why we chose to tell in that way. But they were they were terrific and I think they did what they needed to do. And in terms of you know help set up and explain the The idea at the at the appropriate places and And like I said we're lovely to work with And in terms of will there be a second season I Would say yes. I think that there will be probably many more seasons. And I think they'll probably be international versions of of the show With people from different countries. You know tempting to see.

"Odd occurred that one of the things. That's very universal. Is the idea that every single person in the world wants to be loved for who they are. That's something that unifies everybody and you know regardless of where you live where you're from. You know how much money you have or don't have what you look like. You know whether you think you're attractive or not attractive whether you what kind of career you have or don't have you know your social status. Your you know any of that stuff. we all want the same thing and you know there's been many studies that have shown that if you're really interested in a long term Successful relationship whether that's a marriage or or life partner As many people look for you We'll see and study after study that the building blocks of success have to do with emotional connection and not physical attraction. And a lot of people talk about you know wanting to get married to their best friend and so we tried to. You know sort of synthesized all that together and thought. Well what if you could start with pure pure love especially in a time in in an era where You know the ways that that most many single people look to find love our through you know dating apps or or technological me and you many people when you talk to them describe feeling disenfranchised by that and feel like they're disconnected actually from other people and feel like they're disposable where there's a there's a surface level judgment that's based on a picture or a you know a profile you know a number of quick facts and and they find them themselves they find it a very shallow experience You know trying to find a mate and so we we thought about you. Know How could you come up with something that again start? It was was sort of enabled a true To grow and Got Rid of those devices. And that's where the idea for the pods came from and then I thought it was really interesting if you had the chance to start with true pure genuine love Could that survive in? What many people describe a very polarized world? You know there's a lot of judgment that's thrown at people. Whether it's you know I in our everyday lives or on social media or wherever sometimes that's from other people and sometimes it's of our own doing and so if you started with love could that overcome any of the obstacles in the real world. Could that overcome any differences that we have in you know in any category things that that you know extensively pull us apart and the point of view of the show wasn't well of course it does the? It's really a question that's asked several times throughout show. Which is you know is it possible is love blind. Uh more canopy and so that was those. Were the building blocks of the show. How long did it take to cast to film? What was the grand scheme of time that the project took A great question. I think came up with the idea in probably. I don't know a couple of little over two years ago and You know we put it together Net flicks was my first call And you know very fortunate. They they bought the show and You know from that point forward probably took us. I'd say three months to cast Three and a half months. Something like that and And then we filmed ultimately in October November twenty eighteen and went on the air in February of Twenty twenty. How did you decide? Why did you decided Lanta for the casting? We want it to be in one specific place because we wanted people to feel like they had a real shot if they fell in love a real shot at actually developing that relationship in the real world and the idea of You know taking people who were from very disparate places You know obviously create. Its own obstacles For most people so we wanted to. We wanted to eliminate that as a as an impediment for people and then so we wanted to one geographical location and Atlanta Was a great place for for several reasons. We've done a lot of filming there. There's also A probably the biggest stage in that. I'm aware of in the United States is at Pinewood in Atlanta and the pods which were built that the city was built on a sound stage was on the biggest stage at Pinewood. I think it was. I think we were the next biggest stage down was where they were filming. One of the vendors movies I think at the time So it was. It was literally the biggest I've ever been on And we needed a big space and that felt like a good place to house it and we felt like we would have some success at at casting it there and And like I said we've done a lot of work and had good production connections there. How did you come up with the sequence of events during filming? Did you have some sort of scientists or therapists that helped you work out the structure of the show? No No I came up with it. it you know. I felt like each You know it was a very simple actually. Very simple idea you know. We wanted to everyone to get to talk to everyone else And so we would have to 'cause they couldn't see or speak to one another except for you know when they went on the pods. Obviously they can see each other ever but So we had to organize the dates for people and in the beginning like I said we wanted to give everybody a shot to talk to everyone Else on the other side of the wall and so was anywhere between seven and ten minutes At a time and sort of a speed dating round and then from that point forward we would ask throughout the you know the process throughout the time in the pods. We would ask people you know at least once a day. We would ask them to talk. You know tell us the people that they wanted to spend more time with and you know if we had people who had somebody who you know really wanted to you know talk again with another person and that person didn't WanNA speak at all to the first person then they wouldn't ever see each other. We'd never four situations. We really wanted to let people control their own destinies and only talk to the people they were really interested in doing a relationship with you know we never limited them to You know we we never. We never told them what to say or what not to say or put any kind of you know guardrails around them. We really wanted to be their own journey. We're you surprised by the couples that ended up together. Could you did you think for example amber and Barnett there? Sure thing I can absolutely see these two fallen in love or were you totally surprised. By the way all ended up they ended up matching up. It was an amazing thing to just be there. It'd be a part of and watch happen for several reasons One because it's it's probably the scariest show that I've ever been a part of In a you know really invigorating way because there are there other shows where you feel like you know as a producer you have a little bit more control over what what's happening You know even on a show like married at first sight you know. Married at first sight is a show where we know that if people sign up for it they. They're ready to get married to a stranger. That's that's kind of the going in the right bargain right. You're you're signing up I'm GONNA do that And and with this show there was there were no requirements. You know so we. We felt like we wanted to cast for people who are genuinely interested in the idea of Getting married and the idea of finding someone to spend their life with but There was nothing and certainly the intention was. Look if you find somebody if you fall in love then you know. The idea is that you'll propose to them without seeing them. Because you're looking for someone to love and to love you for what's on the inside but there was nothing that said that anybody had to that There were no guarantees. There were no You know no requirements and you know at any point along the way so you know we. There was no guarantee that people were going to get engaged. There was no guarantee that when they saw each other that people were going to You know WANNA stick around. There was no guarantee that people were going to go through with their wedding and there was no. You know so so. That's a very very scary as a producer to witness but like I said also very invigorating and I think so when you talk about being surprised that WHO got together. I think the whole thing was incredibly overwhelmingly surprising in that. You know I mean it wasn't like I said an incredible experience because people would come in to the facility and they would say after having been in the pods for several days they would say God you know it was an incredibly emotional experience an intense experience and they would say that they were forming relationships with people on the other side of the wall. that were completely unique. Can unlike any relationships they'd ever had in their lives they W- described. You know that they had dated. People are two three four five years and they had never had the kind of conversations that they had with people on the other side of the while they never had these kind of conversations with their own family members they got deeper and much more quickly than than they ever imagined and the healings the genuine feeling they had developed. Who WERE I? You know Overwhelming them and Integrate Way and you know so so I was surprised you know we. We weren't prepared for completely. You know all of what happened in the best possible way. I I hope that somebody would get engaged. And we had eight couples get engaged. We only followed six of those show. But we had eight couples you know in real life get engaged and And even the people like I said who didn't get engaged still to this day. Describe it as the most incredible experience their life and you know talk about. Wow if I had you know I I have friends who you know. I can't wait to tell them about this. Like this is the way they're going to find somebody and they also say you know it doesn't matter what you you know how how much content you put out of this experience like people are going to have a hard time believing what's happened to me Which I thought was really interesting. and So yeah so absolutely. I think you know what was great. Was that we. We just kinda followed the process. And you know that we didn't know I mean. I truly had no idea when when Barnett was deciding. Whether he.

"Welcome back to another episode of Reality. With Casey. I hope that you've had a great week. I'm assuming by now you've heard about the show. Love is blind. Or you've seen all of the episode is an incredible new series on Netflix. That really has a compelling twist on Romance. Imagine if you meet somebody and you get the chance to learn all about their family their history their job their hopes and dreams for a romantic relationship. But you never get deceived them. That is until you decide whether or not you want to move forward in a marriage or not and then at that moment you can see each other after someone's proposed to you and you get to decide if you want to move forward in the relationship of course with the ring from there you go on a Mexican vacation you get to see all the other couples that have met through this process. Some of them you even met through the dating experience. Maybe they were even your backup and you get to see them with another partner and then from there you go back to your hometown and you live together but you also get to see where the other person lives and get to meet their families and at the end of that process you get the chance to get married and believe it or not. Some of the couples that met through this process are still married. The show was filmed a year and a half ago. And as you've probably heard in two episodes ago I interviewed Lawrence Speed and she is happily married to her husband Cameron and they met through the show so it was so excited to talk to the Creator of the show Chris Colin and also another cast member Mark Cuevas about this incredible show. How was the show developed? Where did the concept come from? How long did it take to film into cast and the kind of like what has become of the show? It is really become a huge hit. And what is it like to film something so long ago for some of these cast members? They didn't know if the show would ever even air at some point. They have all said that it has been an incredible experience because it's almost like an emotional boot camp and he'd start to think about your own romantic life and the people that you dated. Maybe some of the people that you pass by a bar you would have had an incredible connection with maybe someone that you could have met through a friend or a coworker and you dismiss them because perhaps you looked past the way they looked and just thought it would never work out so it's kind of a fresh kind of cool idea and I'm sure that there are countless people across the world now who are opening themselves up to the idea of meeting someone in one of these pods. I actually met my husband match dot com so we met through a picture. Of course he has said that. I had terrible profile picture. Because I'm one of those typical girl's sort of cut somebody else out from the side of the picture and made it too obvious. He had been roommates with someone who's girlfriend was a professor at U. C. An done a whole dissertation on online dating so she gave him like a cheat sheet of what to look for. And in those days more women were on match dot Com than men so they had many more options than we did so we kind of winked at each other and then started a conversation and the process. We realized that our lives had sort of crossed over professionally. We had a ton common. We met at a bar in Santa Monica. I wore a terrible outfit that I regret to this day. But we just had so much in common from the beginning and I was actually my husband's first date on match dot com. I went on about like eight dates. Some of them were nut bags. One of them grew up in a colts. Now it would have been a red flag for normal people and they would have gotten up and left for the appetizer but I wanted to hear his life story so I think I stayed at the bar. Maybe for like two and a half hours really got all the information I needed about his crazy childhood and then he was led to believe that we were GonNa go out again and I had to break it to him that I would probably never see him again. That said after all the crazy dates that I had it was worth it because my husband and I went on one date. And we're pretty much inseparable and so that was twelve years ago and five kids later. So if you're single and you're thinking I don't know where can I meet somebody? I just say be open to everything. Be Open to online dating for someone to set you up or maybe even meet somebody in a crazy thing like a pod on a new show on that flex because this show has become such a big hit. They're going to have a lot of spin offs and I'm just hoping that you all find love and consider me as inefficient for your wedding. Should that day come so here? We go with Chris. Colin the creator of this incredible show called love is blind and Mark Cuevas who was a cast member on this first season and so here we go Chris. Welcome to the show. Thank you really glad to be here. Thanks for having me. Let me first ask you this. Have you spent any time drinking champagne in the last few days? Have you kicked a wall or you? High fiving strangers on the street I like Scotch particularly but No I'm kidding No it's been great. It's been really truly One of the most amazing experiences and to have people respond to the show and be as excited about is. I've been all along. The way is incredibly gratified. Tell me how the show was developed. How did how did the concept for the show came about we have our company has a lot of experience in the relationship space? We do a number of different relationships series and so the area we think about a lot and I was thinking about net flicks and the idea of Excessive global platform and thinking about an idea that could essentially resonate around the world and the.
"mark cuevas" Discussed on It's Been a Minute with Sam Sanders
"Actually any good. Love is blind is sort of the perfect blended smoothie of so many other reality shows and this experiment has been conducted before we've seen people date in the dark. We've actually seen true documentaries about how blind date people who actually cannot see We've seen shows where people get married at first sight. So you know it really mix all that together and desa very well. It's interesting how love is blind goes through the whole journey incorporating shows at once it has a show where people meet but dense each other Propose to each other without having seen each other than they actually see each other and that's again they go on their honeymoon right away. I think on a honeymoon. Why not and then they go live together. It's so much and they go home and they to see one another's apartments and houses and oh by the way I'm deeply in debt so I don't even really have anywhere to live. There were two moments in this show where I was like. Oh the candor in this discussion it feels just as candid as like real life. Discussions between partners talking about how to navigate having one black partner in one white partner meeting. The parents got felt so real conversation. That you alluded to earlier where one woman says to her fiance. Just so you know. I'm broke yeah credits crap. And I don't like to work. That felt so real right. It's very rare to see a discussion about money in a reality show. I say bring it on. I WANNA go big picture even further though a thing that I've noticed with love is blind the circle the mass singer It seems like we're in a moment where a lot of these reality shows that are succeeding. Have a premise. In which the big point is what you can't see me at first. What is up with us being really into watching shows about anonymity and performance while I do kind of have a grand universal theory about this if you want to hear it I of course think obfuscation. Masking pretending this is our whole world now and you can play it out in politics. You can play it out. In celebrityhood US certainly played out in social media with influencers. Everybody is presenting a disguise We have people in leadership positions who have very thin resumes who have been promoted beyond their abilities and are sort of wearing a mask Mitt. Romney confessed recently to having like a fake twitter account to troll people. Remember that what I about. The mass singer is that it's a very fun and friendly way to work out. What I think are some real anxieties about who's under there and they go through a lot of craziness on that show with a panel tries to guess it's all sort of celebrities who all kind of know each other and you can recognize each other but neither can the rest of us and there's just something. I think the astonishing quality of that. Reveal that you thought it was celebrity a we were all certain it was. Oh my gosh. It turns out to be celebrity. Be At the same time. I was dealing with watchmen. Which was all about masks? And this is the. Hbo Drama With the starring keen based on the graphic novel right about cops and domestic terrorists. All sort of using masks in different ways. Vigilantism there again. I see masking in a lot of things. What does the success of a show like love is blind and a show like the circle even on a platform like net flicks say about Netflix? And what they want and what they might be giving us more of going forward you know. Tv critics have for a long time. Struggled with what is Netflix. And what does Netflix want to be? And what does Netflix see as its identity Because that's how we dealt with networks for so long we know what an HBO show looks like. We know what an NBC show looks like versus a CBS show and Neth looks just sorta throws all the spaghetti against the wall. A net flicks is trying to replace television and the box office all at once so I was lucky enough to talk briefly with one of the contestants from love is blind earlier this Mark who like we like? Oh poor market. So he's a good soul. Yeah and I'm going to ask you the same question. I asked him after experiencing this show in his case. Living The show. You Angst over do you. In fact think love is blind.

Yeah Yeah but they appointed Mike Pence which like has drawn a lot of criticism because his history on yeah pandemics or on and it's spotty at best you know. He presided over an HIV outbreak in his home state of Indiana when he was governor because he was reluctant to oversee a needle exchange program. Yeah exactly so. People are a little sceptical and they just announced yesterday that all the messaging rule go through pence who can say what on TV basically. They want to have the same message all across. There's so much going on here with our response and our leaders are doing but there are also some bigger questions about you know what world leaders will do this year particularly regarding something like the Olympic passing. That's happening this summer in the summer. Where in Tokyo and there's rumors at least that it might not. Yeah there's been some concerns within the industry. I mean you know. Lots of sporting events have been cancelled right now all across Europe so naturally. It's something that they're thinking about.

Both y'all cover the markets shell cover business for marketplace in terms of like how to be a good consumer and all of this. What should we be doing besides living our lives as normal and washing our hands right right? Yeah I mean. I think that there's not much you can do for sure. Listen to and this isn't really by being consumer it's just about being person but listen to what the CDC's saying why's your hands. Don't put your hands on your mouth when you touch the DOORKNOB. Don't bite your nails. Yeah probably don't do that in general But also I think for people who are worried about their retirement accounts or their investment accounts. Check right now. Yeah it's like if you're investing for the longterm just leave it alone set it and forget it and also I don't know I think it's important to note that right now. It's still a low risk. Be careful say but like I don't know crazy levels of fear doesn't really help. We want to be alarmist.

You're listening to it's been a minute from NPR. I'm Sam Sanders and I'm GonNa take some time now to talk about this. New Reality Show a net flicks that I have been obsessed with. Maybe you've heard of it. It is called love is blind. I've met the person I want to spend the rest of my life. I've never seen her before you choose someone to marry. How nice to hear from you without ever seeing this show. It's a big hit. Netflix says a few times since its release. It has been the number one show on Netflix. In America like for several days on love is blind. Contestants cannot see each other. They meet from behind a wall. They have dates without seeing each other behind those walls and then they propose to each other only after that do this either fiance and start a new life together and live in the same apartment and planned bachelor and Bachelorette parties and then walked down the aisle or not all on cameras. You'd said Yes semi twice once behind a wall and once in person this is Mark Cuevas. He is one of the contestants who's trying to figure things out with his potential partner. Jessica but you said he was actually got the chance to talk with mark this week. So excited We spoke before the rest of the season of this show dropped on Thursday so listeners. If you've watched already there are no spoilers and never thought in my entire life beyond reality television or any kind of TV. Show at the fact like I never thought I would do that but I kept telling myself throughout the whole process like why not so. I asked Mark to tell me the biggest change in his life since his very popular series premiered getting used to sell fees on the people take wanting to take is pretty interesting. I was at my apartment. Jim and someone walked away. Hey can I get a selfie? And I'm like what what I loved about. Love is blind. Is that the drama and the fights on this reality show. They actually felt real like there's this moment when one of the contestants amber she tells her new fiance Barnett that she's got some financial problems haven't average credit score thank great. It's not bad and there's my student how much talk else twenty grandes that I have not been paying on on. You know. Mark agreed that this sort of realism is. What makes this show such a good watch? There is real love stories here. There's a lot of you know things that aren't as great. But that's the real life stories like if everything was just happy sunshine and roses. I don't think anybody would watch you know because it's not real and I think that they get the real authentic because we aren't active like everything I felt I felt it in the moment and I was just real. It'd be myself but mark also told me some of what you see on the show like Jessica and him living together. It's not entirely real home. Base for her was her home in her dog. I understood that she was always travelling a lot too so they got kind of taken out of context. I'm in here. And she does have her career that she has to do like the world didn't stop for like the show you know and so. I didn't really get to see her as much anyway. Besides that I wanted to ask mark ultimately if the premise of the show that love is blind that love can be blind does mark one of the contestants think that's true it can be. I think that we have so much internal dialog that we stop ourselves from like genuinely feeling a connection like a like me. Do they have this job or this? Hyper the this. But like it's like when we can take a second and actually like shut that voice off. Mb present in the moment and feel that other person for who they are in like it. You know obviously physical attraction shirts important but can you deeply connect with that person in like you feel them listening to you? That was Mark Cuevas. He is one of the contestants on the net flicks reality show. Love is blind in. Y'All we're not done talking about this show yet. I wanted to figure out why the show has tapped such a nerve right now so like all the book critic who has written a lot about reality. Tv Hello Hank. Hi How are you? I'm good how are you? It's been a minute? Has Hank Stewart TV critic at the Washington Post and asked him? I whether this show love is blind is.

"Just the entire time. You're just please please run in opposite directions. And that's what I don't get because in so many other aspects of the show. The couples are extremely candid about money about race. But in this one couple they cannot be candid about physical attraction. Just be candid and say I'm not from ever GONNA WANNA Up You you would think they would have like maybe an episode. That was focused on them. Sitting down with a marriage with a couples counselor. Every every couple minutes couple's counseling. Whether you're on a dumb reality show or not. My Gosh the whole story. Line between Jean and Damian about her tendency to self sabotage in silent bracket. Because she's not that into you. Awesome trying to be a personality. She's also one of those women who has picked up some kind of psychological therapy lingo. Such she doesn't understand what any of it actually means so most people. I think you're right Sam. I think you're onto something when you say it's a combination of candor about certain things in totally not dealing with other things because when you when you talk about the physical attraction issue with Jessica mark the funny thing to me. Was this show which makes a big thing out of like you. Don't see each other. I that turns out to mean for most people a very nebulous thing that they don't really talk about about whether they have physical chemistry. And it's kind of hard to get at the only couple where they really talk about. What that means is when Jessica says he's too short essentially you wouldn't even think necessarily about how short he is. Yeah except that. He's in this show with a lot of super tall guys and is very tall herself. They talk about that part. But I think she doesn't know how to separate out he's younger than me versus. He's too short versus he has some ineffable thing versus. I'm hung up on thinking about this. Other dude who is not interested in me. Man. You start off with them all kind of trying to couple up. And if you don't find a partner who likes you and you like them to go you are raptured to get out raptured which could be for the best for these people and it's like Because these people only get to stay if they have a partner to go into the next phase with it is hard not to read some of them particularly Jessica through the Lens of like. I just WanNa make sure there's some like I just don't want to be the one when the music stops. He doesn't have a chair in this game. Okay you mentioned music. I do not WanNa let this conversation. The music is very with talking about how excruciatingly bad the music. We know the backstory on the music. I think it is basically. Their budget was like four hundred dollars on wedding. This is not. This is not a lavishly produced show and two dollars for whatever open source music. They had access to which is crazy because like Netflix company. That's been God knows how much money you Roma on the Iranian. An Irishman somewhere on a D. aging technology is very expensive and all the love is blind music. Also maybe they pay. Nick and Vanessa was shaped by the minute. The worst host total amount of screen. Time that Nick and Vanessa. Which I'm sorry Vanessa and I'm obviously Nicholas say that what he wants to obviously Nicklaus they have they are the Viola Davis in doubt Judi dench and Shakespeare in length shortcut impactful speaking of short. But impactful I gotta say mark to shape. No one of the best scenes that I've ever seen in reality. Tv show history happened on this show. And I'm talking about the blow up. Knock down drag out fight between Carlton have you ever seen such reality? Tv Gold like. I haven't seen something that good. Since Theresa Flip The table on Housewives Teresa flipping the town and knew that was going to go badly out. But you don't know how it's going to go badly and it's another one. Where in that conversation between this woman? Diamond and this man Carlton. There's a thing he wants to tell her that he doesn't tell her until they're out of these little cells so he is bisexual and he does not reveal this to his fiancee until after she said yes it is proposal and then when he does go about revealing it it goes haywire. Well and it's the thing where she's framing it. More as I'm upset that you kept me. And he has always had a sense that it was going to be an issue. And there's just I don't know Sam what do you I mean I. I had a reaction of like. It's hard to know for sure how she would have reacted if he had told her. Like sooner s someone who has had to have those conversations before you have to have an early on you have to and there's no excuse. I don't care if you're on a video camera or not are in a pot or not bike. You Owe your potential life partner that conversation also her a tiny bit of understanding and space to say it's hard yeah also part of. I love the fight so much is because in the middle of this. W- really emotional fight over whether or not he should have disclosed this and how she should feel about it. She starts in the heat of the argument quoting beyond sailor to pull the neck. No I watch your wig because it keeps your Wiegmann flat piece out. You may because I'm telling the truth. It was immediately. The audience is on her side in credible and that feels very true to life. People think if I put off telling somebody something for long enough then somehow magically it won't be as big of a deal later and that's almost never true I will say when you get to the end. This show shares the General Netflix problem of a couple too many episodes. I have a question for both of you about what this says about fx strategy going forward. I think it's a continuation of where they've been going. Which is essentially if you particularly in basic cable if you exist in basic cable and you're making money off of anything they WANNA come and try to replace you. They are trying to eat your lunch if you are anywhere in cable making money and so you know their DNA is video store. They've always been like video store. You could go in there and get a foreign film or a kids movie or A. You know whatever you wanted. 'cause the point was it was an access point and not a brand like HBO or something like that and not a content brand. And I'll say for the record. I have watched just about every netflix. Reality Show of note. I have yet to watch. The Irishman might not happen. Actually we should throw in a plug for Sam's show check out today's episode of. It's been a minute.

I thank you very much Stephen Thompson Sam Sanders. What is making you happy this week? I am really really loving the new TAME IMPALA ALBUM. They've been around for a while and I always knew that they were there. But I don't know what it was maybe KCRW PR station playing them. All the time for the last year or two and just become obsessed with them the only word that I have to describe their music and this is every song. There's I hear. It's just a vibe Like as soon as you put it on the music his voice it is urging you to just sit down and relax. It feels retro and modern at the same time I also loved that like there are various corners of the Internet. That argue that like Tame Impala is secretly black guys Australian. I think he's an Australian hippie but Black people secretly love. Damn Apollo not so secretly secretly. Yeah famously childish. Gambino says that TAME IMPALA is his favorite artist and that quote black people. Really F- With Empower. I agree Tim Impalas new album. The slow rush One of the standout tracks is single. Borderline.
